One thought on “If Happiness Is a Warm Puppy…

  1. What a pose! He looked like he stepped off the pages of Edward Gorey’s version of T.S. Eliot’s “Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats.”

    “Bustopher Jones is not skin and bones–
    In fact, he’s remarkably fat.
    He doesn’t haunt pubs—he has eight or nine clubs,
    For he’s the St. James’s Street Cat!
    He’s the Cat we all greet as he walks down the street
    In his coat of fastidious black:
    No commonplace mousers have such well-cut trousers
    Or such an impeccable back.
    In the whole of St. James’s the smartest of names is
    The name of this Brummell of Cats;
    And we’re all of us proud to be nodded or bowed to
    By Bustopher Jones in white spats!”
